Potential topics for the Dryad blog.

Topics under consideration:

Questions from librarians (in response to Jane's NISO webinar, August 2010):

  1. Can there more than one DOI for data package(s) for each article? Or is it envisioned that these will be one-to-one?
  2. Any statistics on the use of the deposited data in Dryad?
  3. What do you know about how the users of Dryad are searching for data sets?
  4. Are you looking at using something other than DSpace down the road; why was DSpace chosen?
  5. Any evidence that data sets in Dryad are indeed being reused?
  6. Will there be relationships developed between Dryad and other information organizations - such as Web of Science?
  7. Is access to Dryad data limited by journal subscription? and have you been tracking if other people are using the data in dryad?
  8. For how long is Dryad funded?
  9. On the slide showing the joint publication and Dryad workflow, what happens to the data sets when the article is rejected for publication? Do the data sets go no further?
  10. What percentage of the total # of authors have donated their datasets. Is it significantly better than the average # of academic authors donating to Digital Repositories?
  11. You have good descriptive metadata, but you don't have browse by subject/keyword. Why don't you allow other browse facets?
  12. Could you elaborate on the degree of automation for email exchanges, DOIs, etc?

Other topics:

  1. more about DOIs: what does it do? what you can do with it? educate users to use DOI and its value, what does DataCite mean? what do users get out of this?
  2. HIVE overview, demo (in conjunction with Dublin Core workshop?)
  3. HIVE -- converting vocabularies into SKOS
  4. Personnel sketches
  5. Data reuse success stories-- seeking examples
  6. creative or unusual uses of Dryad
  7. announcing new board and governance model, and new cost recovery plan
  8. new partner publishers: BMC, eLife
  9. new button available for authors' websites
